Sony FE 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G OSS Overview

Spanning a useful range of telephoto focal lengths, the FE 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G OSS from Sony is a versatile zoom lens designed for full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras. Complementing the reach, this lens' optical design incorporates four aspherical elements and two extra-low dispersion glass elements to control spherical and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range for increased clarity, sharpness, and color accuracy. A Nano AR coating has also been applied to individual lens elements to minimize lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions. Well-suited to a variety of telephoto needs, this zoom lens balances both a versatile focal length range along with a sophisticated optical design for maintained image quality.

Working in concert with the optical assets, this lens also incorporates an Optical SteadyShot image stabilization mechanism that minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. Also benefitting sharpness is a linear actuator autofocus system, which offers smooth, quiet focusing performance to support both stills and movie recording applications. An internal focusing mechanism is also employed, which limits the overall length of the lens when focusing and both a focus range limiter and focus hold button facilitate more intuitive handling. Additionally, the lens is designed to be dust- and moisture resistant for use in trying conditions.

Designed to cover a variety of telephoto perspectives, this full-frame 70-300mm E-mount lens can also be used on APS-C format cameras where it will provide an equivalent zoom range of 105-450mm.
A variable f/4.5-5.6 aperture helps keep lens size and weight to a minimum while still offering outstanding image quality.
Two extra-low dispersion glass elements are featured in the lens design to help reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.
Four aspherical elements are incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
Optical SteadyShot image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when shooting handheld with slower shutter speeds. This stabilization system can also be combined with select camera's sensor-shift type image stabilization for more effective control of camera blur.
A linear autofocus motor and internal focus design provide quick and precise autofocus performance and enables accurate and silent focusing while recording videos.
A focus range limiter button offers faster performance when photographing moving subjects.
Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

question

Does it work well with the A6300?
Asked by: Janos S.
Not sure why it won't be that impressive on a crop sensor. It is FANTASTIC on my A6000 and getting out to 450mm reach is impressive. Not really anything else in the current lineup that can achieve that at this price.

The 70x200 f2.8 would be by far the best if you can afford it. Also can buy telecoverters with. 1-4 and 2 0

An "Informed_buyer" said: "It will work with 6300, but the lens is designed for FF image circle, it won't be that impressive on crop a sensor." Is this true? If so, why? Does it even mean anything?
Asked by: David
This lens should work fine on a A6300, you would be using the center most portion of the lens and will produce sharp images.

I upgraded from a Sony crop filter to full frame ...

I upgraded from a Sony crop filter to full frame and am looking to replace my 70-350mm lens with a full frame equivalent for hiking. I do some nature macro and some wildlife photography and a willing to carry a second lens for wide angle shots. Tried the Sigma 100-400mm, but it was just too heavy for me to operate without a tripod. Also didn’t like the relatively long min. variable minimal focal distance. Is the 70-300mm the closest available full frame equivalent to the 70-350? I really would like the extra reach to 400mm for bird shots, but holding the Sigma 100-400mm up in the air was exhausting and made the hike less fun.
Asked by: Michelle
A Sony E 70-350mm would be the equivalent of 105-525mm on a full frame sensor. Getting into a FE 70-300mm would have no crop factor on a full frame Sony E mount camera. Unfortunately, the Sigma 100-400mm would be the lightest possible option to get closer to the 400mm range.
